General :: USB (Removable) Drives Not Mounting

Sep 29, 2009

I just started using openSUSE 11.1 with xfce and my problem is that I cannot mount my external USBs, I get the following message:

org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result).

It seems hal does not give me permission to do this. Am I able to mount using the command line? If so, how?

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Removable Devices When Plugged In

May 26, 2009

I want the following behavior in kubuntu 9.04 when I plug a device (USB stick or CD disk):

1. It should be mounted automatically for me. Now it isn't, though it appears in fdisk -l output: Code: Disk /dev/sdd: 8006 MB, 8006926336 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30544 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x9b12d290
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 16 30544 7815232 b W95 FAT32 and if I mount it manually, all goes OK

2. If I mount manually my CD disk and then press the eject button on my drive nothing happens until I manually unmount the drive. But I want it to open immediately

All this worked for me in kubuntu 8.10, and broke with the upgrade.
My fstab entries Code: /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb vfat noexec,codepage=866,utf8,nosuid,nodev,quiet,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,user 0 0

Fedora :: Changing Mount Options For Removable USB Drives In F13?

Jul 16, 2010

I have a 2 TB hard drive in an external USB caddy that I use for backups. The drive gets automatically mounted when connected to F13, which is great, and the default mount options it uses are:Code:rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisksHowever, I want to add an extra option or two but I don't know where I can do this. Does anyone know where I can add mount options onto the default set?

Ubuntu :: Has 'Removable Drives And Media' Option Been Moved Somewhere Else In 10.04?

Jul 23, 2010

I'm running a fresh 64-bit install of Ubuntu 10.04. I no longer have a System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media option in my menus, and need to re-configure it (I had set it to "Do Nothing" and "Always do this action" sometime in the past, but now I want to change it)I have right-clicked my menu, went to edit, and made sure it wasn't un-checked)Has the "Removable Drives and Media" option been moved somewhere else in 10.04?

Hardware :: Automatically Mount Removable Drives In Red Hat Enterprise 5?

Aug 6, 2010

so that short description doesn't cut the mustard. Let me start by describing what I had working in RHEL4, so you know the requirements. There is a group here at my job that does a lot of data transfer to external USB drives. I leveraged fstab-sync (which we normally turn off at my work) and created a FDI policy file to search on the drives' HAL descriptors, set the mount options, and define the mount point by name (each drive is uniquely named).

The result of all this is that when the user plugged in a drive, it mounted in /media automatically, on a unique path, and with permissions so that every user could read/write to it. SO now we're upgrading to RHEL5, and fstab-sync doesn't exist any more. Instead there's gnome-mount (did I mention we use Gnome?) and I can't figure out how to get the same functionality working.

Hardware :: Installing Live CDs On Removable Hard Drives?

Jul 30, 2010

When you run a Linux live CD it automatically detects your hardware configuration, or at least tries to. Say you got a live CD and it works perfect on one computer, detects all the hardware. If you install the operating system from the live CD to a hard drive, does it only install the drivers you need for your hardware?

If so, say you were to hypothetically do that on a removable hard drive that you lock and unlock with the hardware keys; would that mean if you want to move the drive from one computer to another regularly, the OS would not be configured properly on a different hardware configuration, and wouldn't be able to configure itself properly because it is now on a hard drive? I know that Linux does try to detect new hardware each time it boots, but I guess the short version of the question is: Does installing a distribution on a live CD to a hard drive mean you will not have all the drivers available on the CD?

This is not something I am sure I will ever plan to do, but it would be no different than if you wanted to swap your drive into a new computer. If it could at least still connect to the Internet it might try to reconfigure itself. If installing the live CD means you get absolutely all the contents on the CD, that would answer my question. Maybe someone might know exactly how that would work.

Slackware :: Create Mount Points Automatically For Removable Drives?

Jan 9, 2010

At work I use Ubuntu and one nice thing about it is that it creates mount points for removable drives automatically.

In Slackware I can set up XFCE so that it mounts drives when they are plugged in, but only if they're already specified in the fstab (which means I must have used them and set them up in advance).

This is becoming a problem now that removable usb drives of all sorts are so common.

How would I configure fstab to achieve this?

Fedora :: Prevent Mounting Of External Drives & CD / DVD Drives

Oct 18, 2010

I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unabling Autorun Without Removable Drives And Media Option?

Jan 10, 2010

I've just partitioned my hard drive with GParted so that I have space to install and run Windows OS based programmes such as Monkey Island (wine simply won't work) and other PC games. I have the Windows XP SP2 Installation CD but my OS (Intrepid Ibex) won't allow me to autorun the CD and proceed to installation.

Now having hunted around the net little, it seems the answer is System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media. Problem is, I don't have a Removable Drives and Media option on this menu. Is there a workaround for this? E.g., is there a way of using the Terminal to enable autorun, or is there another way I can do this?As I'm pretty new to this thing, feel free to use short words and detailed explanations.

Ubuntu Security :: Virus Scanner To Scan Some Removable Media (USB Drives, Mp3 Players, Etc)?

I've heard a lot of people recommending clam av, but everything I've read suggests that clam av is better used for scanning e-mail servers and not home desktop application...

General :: Rsync - Mounting Network Drives And The DLink DNS-321?

Jan 27, 2010

I recently built a small Intel Atom 330 based server for my home. I'm using the Vortexbox Fedora-based OS to run the server (primarily used as a media server). So far everything is working great. In addition to my media server, I've got a DLink DNS-321 NAS. I would like to setup a scheduled, incremental backup of my main server to the DLink NAS. I understand rsync is an excellent option, and am willing to undertake the task of setting it up on my server, but I am uncertain how to make it all happen with the DLink NAS. The NAS is very barebones, and I don't know if I can even install rsync on it. I don't even know if I can get to any kind of command line on the NAS box. 1. Can I mount the NAS drive on my main Linux server and then just run rsync on the server?

OpenSUSE :: System No Longer Responds To Removable Media Such As Flash Drives And Insertions Of DVD/CD Disks?

May 20, 2010

Through some recent update, which one I am not sure, my system no longer responds to removable media such as flash drives and insertions of DVD/CD disks. Whereas before, for instance, if I inserted a USB flash drive, the "Device Notifier" would pop up, tell me that a new device had been detected, and ask me what I wanted to do with it, now nothing. "My Computer" (sysinfo:/)does not update either. The kernel knows the device is there, since I can see it when I do "lsusb". OpenSuSE x86_64 11.2.

General :: Windows - Preserve Diacritics When Cross-mounting Drives To Windows7

Sep 5, 2011

A friend backed up an in accessible Windows 7 partition to a big (close to 1TB) external USB drive using KNOPIX. Unfortunately the umlauts and accents in the file names of his extensive music collection now appear garbled (UTF8 vs ISO xxx, I guess) when he accesses that drive from Windows. My guess is he needs to mount the two drives in a 'special way,' that takes the diacritics translation into account, on KNOPIX? Or do you have another idea what went wrong? This is the second part of a windows/linux problem I'm having. See how-does-one-mount-a-partition-in-windows-7 for the other part

Hardware :: Mounting Hard Drives

Mar 21, 2009

I know this is an easy task, especially using cPanel. However I want to do this without formatting the drive, since there is sensitive data already on the hard drives. So how would I mount a hard drive, but not format/lose any of the data already on it?I've looked and everything seems to lead me to believe that I'll lose data if I do it that way.

What can I do to make sure these automount when I login?

Fedora :: USB Drives No Longer Auto Mounting?

Sep 16, 2010

I know this problem was mentioned here before but because I could not find a straight forward solution anywhere I am reposting this here. So here goes.As of today, my Fedora 13 64-bit has ceased to auto-mount USB drives completely. I have made absolutely no changes to the system and I am completely baffled and frustrated by this sudden development. I desperately need this system to function properly as I use it for school and this really put a wrench in my works, especially since I have done nothing to cause this. I assume that one of the many recent updates that have been released must have done this, but I have absolutely no idea how to fix this. Why do Fedora developers release updates that cripple a perfectly functioning system is beyond me and crap like this really makes me consider switching back to Ubuntu.

OpenSUSE :: Mounting Hard Drives As User?

OpenSuse 11.2 64bit When I select a hard drive in Dolphin file manager it asks for the root password. I would like to gain easier access to the drives. The Yast Partition Manager lists all of the drives and has a dialog box to change this i.e. user can mount the drive. Can we change this feature on the run, while the system is running ? The Fstab file is not listing all of the drives, so I cannot just edit the config here.
